Study shows conservation paying off in Minnesota

Brad Jordahl Redlin manages Minnesota’s Ag Water Quality Certification Program and says findings from the state’s farm business management database show the average net cash income for certified farms was more than $50,000 more than non-certified farms.

“It’s not always known exactly why, but one thing that is consistent year in year out, every time every check, certified farms are just making more money.”

The Ag Water Quality Certification Program is voluntary and has grown to 1,500 farms since its launch in 2016.
